Concealed Carry

First Steps Pistol Course

The First Steps Pistol course is a 3 hour course intended to introduce the student to the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for owning and using a specific model of firearm. The goal of this program is teach the participant the fundamentals of firearms safety and shooting, Since FIRST Steps programs are action type-specific (only one specific action type of firearm is taught), and teach only the most basic shooting skills, they are not complete “courses” in the traditional sense of the word

The overview of topics covered are the following:

  • Principles of safe gun handling
  • Handgun components / operation (Revolver and semi-automatic)
  • Ammunition components / malfunctions
  • Shooting fundamentals (stance, sight alignment grip, etc.)
  • Handgun cleaning / maintenance
  • Safe storage of firearms
  • Overview of Florida firearms law
  • If you don’t have a firearm, we will provide one for you

NOTICE: This course affords you the credentials to apply for the FL Concealed Weapon/Firearm License. If you are interested please let us know so we can get you a application packet at no charge to you. You will still have to go through a background check with the State of FL and the FBI and supply the funds needed for the fingerprint processing fee and licensing fee.
